Areivim Sues Bill Davidson Estate

from the Detroit Free Press:

Pistons owner’s estate sued for donation

The late Detroit Pistons owner Bill Davidson helped create the Jewish charity Areivim – a term that means “those who are responsible.” In 2006, each of the dozen or so founders pledged to contribute $5 million each to promote Jewish living.

But Davidson died after contributing only $200,000, and now the charity, based in New York, is seeking the rest in a lawsuit filed in Oakland County Probate court. Named in the suit are representatives of the estate who are refusing to pay the charity the remaining $4,800,000 owed.
